Welcome to Airfix Workbench, an exciting new addition to the Airfix website where every month we will be taking you behind-the-scenes of the Airfix Product Development department, tracking the development of Airfix models often many months before they are released.


Why not suggest a topic for a future Workbench, or discuss the latest post over on the Workbench Forum?

Display Typhoon and photo Meteors

We have something really special for our readers in this latest edition of Workbench. Firstly, we feature a spectacular build project which takes one of our 1/24th scale Hawker Typhoon IB kits and does something truly spectacular with it, before moving on to bring you the latest in a long line of Airfix exclusives. We have a full update from the latest 1/48th scale Gloster Meteor announcement, including box artwork reveal, scheme details and the first pictures of the new parts to be included with this handsome release.

Loch Ness leviathan and Bovington show report

In the latest edition of Workbench, we feature one of the iconic scheme and decal options included with the first release of our stunning new 1/72nd scale Wellington Mk.IA tooling and look at a rather flamboyant South Atlantic Sea King. We also include a special report from the recent South West Model Show, which took place at Bovington Tank Museum.
